cell's Z DIMENSION(Zd) The Z dimension is the height from the bottom of the cell to the center of its sample chamber. In case of using a small volume cell in a spectrophotometer or fluorometer, the Z dimension of the cell should be the same as the height of the instrument's light beam. The height of the light beam is usually 8.5 mm or 15mm, depending on the manufacturer. When ordering a cell which has more than one Z dimension available,it is necessary to specify the required Z dimension.

ES Quartz is a slightly better grade of quartz than UV Quartz and offers superior transmission in the lower nm range. That is to say, the usable range of ES Quartz includes UV Quartz whose range is 220~2500nm. So the material of our products chooses ES Quartz. If no specific instructions, our UV quartz product's material chooses ES Quartz.

Material Code Usable Range Matching Tolerance
Optical Glass OG 320 - 2,500nm 0.5% at 350nm
UV Quartz UV 220 - 2,500nm 0.5% at 220nm
ES Quartz ES 190 - 2,500nm 0.5% at 200nm
IR Quartz IR 220 - 3,500nm 0.5% at 2730nm
